I can't believe it my babies are ONE!
This last year has been the most amazing time of my life. I always knew I wanted to be a mom but never dreamed it would be this amazing. These two little people have made me such a better person.
Here are some things you have been up to over the last month as you enter into your second year of life.
You weigh 22 pounds 15 ounces (75th percentile), you are 31 inches tall (93rd percentile) and your head circumference is 19 inches (95th percentile). I think your weight was actually a little low at your check up since you had just gotten over hand, foot & mouth-you are much closer to 24 pounds.
You are a big boy who can melt your mommas heart with those sweet eyes! You are wearing 12-18 month clothes, size 5.5 shoes and size 4 diapers. Just before you turned a year we were able to switch you to milk from formula. We were hoping to have you completely off the bottle, we can close but with your birthday illness we digressed a bit. You are such a good eater, you can put away some food and fast. That is one of the times you become angry is when you are hungry! You LOVE goldfish and veggie straws. You are cruising around furniture but have no interest in walking any other way, if we try and hold your hands so you can walk your legs come up at a 90 degree angle. Just like every other milestone you will do it when you are ready. You love to play ball and still have the sweetest laugh in the world. You sleep through the night most of the time, but go through periods where you will get up at some point during the night. We think you have pretty bad seasonal allergies so you are taking zyrtec, we are so thankful you seem to have outgrown your reflux! You don't just give your sister her way anymore your fight back-which I think is good to give her a taste of her own medicine. You do not like the feel of grass and try and touch as little as possible when we place you in the yard. You are such a flirt with ladies of all ages-we are going to have to watch you buddy. You most common nicknames right now are booger and JackJack. You are saying a few words, clapping and starting to wave. You still are at 8 for teeth but I think your 1 year molars will be popping through any day now.

You are crazy! You are into everything all the time, keeping us on our toes. You have started climbing. You actually made it on the end table one day. You are smart too, you will push objects around so you can use them in your latest climbing conquest. I can't believe you are not walking yet. You cruise, walk with hands, everything is a push toy, climb stairs but just won't walk on your own. I think you could but are afraid since you try to scale the baby gate. You went to the sippy cup with no problems, but can't do milk. We have switched you back to formula for a bit and then will try again to see if you just weren't ready for the switch. I never knew how bad milk spit-up smelled. You are wearing size 12 clothes with a few 18 months mixed in for length. I think we are going to have a hard time keeping pants on your tiny booty and waist this summer-so I see lots of dresses in your future. You are wearing size 4.5 shoes and size 3 diapers. We tried to switch you up with JackJack but they were just too saggy. You had a last minute surge with teeth this month and I think the count is now at 7, but you don't like for me to look so I am not 100% sure. You decided at 10pm on your birthday eve that you needed to start clapping. So as you hung out with mommy and daddy while sick you completed this milestone. You have also started waving some. The one new thing that I am not a huge fan of is your new mommy attachment-you are so clingy and never make it through a Sunday in nursery. Also you have started having a whinny cry when you are not getting what you want. You are too young for this little miss. You most common nicknames are Potamus and Little Girl. You are a great sleeper, very seldom do you ever get up once we put you to bed. You don't really like to wear bows anymore, which breaks my heart-I am hoping for a come back soon!
You both are loved so much by your mommy and daddy! You have made this last year so amazing and we are looking forward to many many more with you both.
I was hoping to have pictures before I posted but have not been able to snap them yet so I wanted to go ahead and post and will have to update later!
